Byron Katie on Parents and Children

On Parents and Children

My children tell me what they want all the time. And I just hear them. What does that have to do with me? They’re just expressing their wants. Those wants are their property. I have mine, and they have theirs. When they give me their wants can I just listen, without thinking it’s about me? That’s what we all want from our parents: just someone to hear us and understand. We may think we want other things, but that’s what we really want — Byron Katie
